Breaking the mold
The Zonta Club of Martha's Vineyard is looking for women who don't fit the traditional student mold who may be interested in some financial aid. At the club's February meeting, a goal was set to raise money for a non-traditional woman student, perhaps one whose education was interrupted.

If you fit the description of a non-traditional student, call Kaye Flathers 508-696-8880 for more information about the Zonta Club award. Zonta is a service organization dedicated to advancing the status of women.

Springtime arrives special delivery
The ferry will deliver boxes full of springtime on Tuesday, March 21. Would you like to receive some? Orders are being taken now for the American Cancer Society's Daffodil Days. Most businesses, Island schools and town offices already received their order forms.
